Fire destroys B-52s fabled 'Love Shack'

UPI News Service, 12/17/2004 

Fire has destroyed the rundown Georgia house that inspired the famous "Love Shack" single by the B-52's, the Athens, Ga., Banner-Herald reported Friday.

Athens-Clarke County fire officials are investigating the possibility that Monday's fire that destroyed the five-room, tin-roof house where band member Kate Pierson once lived, was intentionally set.

Atlanta resident Allisa Huestis, who had planned to move next week into the renovated house on 80 acres near the Jackson County line, says, "It is the original 'Love Shack.' I just was in touch with the B-52's, and there are pictures throughout the book they just came out with.

"It's where Kate Pierson lived when she was going to the University (of Georgia). They said it was the original 'Love Shack' and was where they created (the hit song) 'Rock Lobster.'"

Investigators said there were no gas or electric hookups in place, and building supplies used for the house's renovation had been stolen.
